Back Check is the latest novel in Kelly Jamieson’s Chicago Aces Hockey Series and I have a confession to make. The book isn’t actually out until early January 2017 but as soon as it arrived for review it went straight to the top of my reading pile! If you have been following the Aces Series many of the characters in this story will already be familiar to you. While it isn’t essential that you have read the other books you will get a lot more out of it if you have.
Unlike many other authors writing in this genre Kelly is a hockey fan who happens to write steaming hot romances. Her characters are believable and the on ice game action is very realistic. In Major Misconduct, the first book in the series, we first met team captain Marc Dupuis and his fiancée Lovey Armstrong. Now in the middle of planning their wedding they have been left high and dry by their wedding planner with only a few months to go.
In steps Katelyn Medford, a highly efficient event organiser who starts whipping everything into shape. When she meets the groomsmen for the first time sparks begin to fly. She hasn’t seen Tanner Bennet since they were at College together. She had been certain that they would have had a future together but when he was called up the NY Islanders – a bona fide NHL team – he walked away without a second glance breaking her heart in the process.
Can they keep things civil for the sake of the wedding or will they be able to be friends again after all this time?
